We here at the Global Grind offices listen to a lot of music. So much that it’s sometimes hard to keep track and process it all. A lot of times we only get to listen to a song once. Certain songs, though, we can’t help but repeat over and over – they’re just that good. In this new daily feature, we will be breaking down the day in music by the number of times we listened to a track. ‘5‘ is the track that had us go back and rewind more than once, the musical highlight of our day. ‘1′ is for the song we listened to once and then not at all, which may or may not be a bad thing.
Today we go with a pop-focused round of songs, with a splash of R&B and hip-hop. Enjoy!
5. JoJo — ‘In The Dark’
The former teenage pop sensation has gotten a little bit older, wiser, and dare we say better? JoJo’s new cut ‘In The Dark’ from her upcoming mixtape, Can’t Take That Away From Me (available exclusively on Rap-up.com and pictured above) is something we didn’t expect to hear but more than happy we did.
4. Jazmine Sullivan — ‘Holding You Down (Goin’ In Circles)’ (VIDEO)
Jazmine Sullivan has released the most underrated R&B jam of the summer, but it just got a little bit better with the brand new video. In this clip, ‘Holding You Down’ is given an old school video treatment, with a house party scene and everything, Every once in a while, it’s good to avoid a bunch of technology and just shoot a video that tells the song’s story in a complete way.
